The Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS) Program


That’s a question all of our children hear at graduation time.  Most are able to tell you which college they’re planning to attend. Others know when and where they’ll start their first full-time job.

But, if you are a teenager with disabilities, there are frequently no easy answers to this seemingly simple question about post-high school activities.

Now, with assistance from Cape Abilities, students with disabilities have the opportunity to create a plan for their future and make those exciting decisions about their career path.

Cape Abilities’ Pre-Employment Transition Services (Pre-ETS) program provides education and  training in the areas of Job Exploration, Workplace Readiness, Work Based Learning Experience, Self-Advocacy and Post-Secondary Education to students with disabilities from age 14-21 (up to their 22nd birthday).

In order to pave the way for employment and to be more marketable in the competitive workforce, the Pre-ETS program provides opportunities for students to refine their work habits and job readiness skills, receive individualized support on resume building and interviewing approaches and also obtain valuable work experience with community businesses.
